Penny, as Joe has said this is the cornish national anthem with a few mistakes.
The songs popular title is "trelawney" but the correct title is "the song of the western men" penned by the Reverend R S Hawker of Morwenstow.
The song charts the arrest and imprisonment at the tower of london of Bishop John Trelawney, a rather controversial figure in cornish history.
try searching under Hawker, his story alone is very interesting,
good luck
